Swiss Quantum Hub joins Amazon Web Services Activate program

We, Swiss Quantum Hub (SQH), are pleased to announce we have joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Activate program.

AWS Activate program will provide the startups in our accelerator with low cost, easy-to-use infrastructure needed to scale and grow their businesses. With AWS Activate, our startups get access to the resources they need to quickly get started on AWS – including credits, technical support, and training.

This agreement is especially paramount for our startups as Amazon has decided to invest hugely in Quantum in the Cloud with its Amazon Braket service.

Amazon Braket is a fully managed service that provides a development environment to explore and design quantum algorithms, test them on simulated quantum computers, and run them on different quantum hardware technologies, including gate-based superconductor computers from Rigetti, quantum annealing superconductor computers from D-Wave, and trapped-ion computers from IonQ.
